There are some things I was always fascinated by in history such as Abraham Lincoln, The Manson Murders, The Dionne Quintuplets, The Triangle Factory Fire, and the Munich Massacre.
The Munich Massacre stands out in my mind, mostly because of how a peaceful happy, event uniting the world being held in a country trying to change it's scarred reputation could turn ironic and violent, we could discuss shit like politics, religion, and security for hours, but 11 innocent people got killed, for something their country was doing that they were probably had nothing to do with.
I'm mentioning this right now because Guri Weinberg, an Israeli actor who will be playing one of the vampires in the next two Twilight flicks is the son of Moshe Weinberg, a Wrestling coach who was among the Israelis killed and Guri was month-old baby. Guri would later portray his father in Spielberg’s movie "Munich". I wonder if young girls who are Twihards will now become interested in find out about the Massacre.
The last movie I saw in the theaters was "The Conspirator" about the Lincoln assassination,but that movie was not very sucessful and I did not create a huge interest in people wanting to find out more about it. I had to explain a lot of things to my mom when we watched, because she didn't know Booth was an actor or about Powell/Payne attacking Seward and Atzerodt attempt to assasinate Johnson.
It's just, I get really absorbed in things and it's difficult to explain!
